How did Curitiba become the smartest city in the world?

I am from Curitiba. It is a pleasure for Curitiba to receive this award to recognize the full story and everyone involved. I was very happy. The award is a matter of fairness. Curitiba should have won before long

This was the first time that the capital, Parana, received the award, and the fifth time that it was among the six smartest cities in the world.

Last year, Curitiba achieved its goal by proposing food and nutrition security based on urban agriculture. In 2019, the project was Vale do Pinhão. In the previous competition, the city was a finalist in another category, urban ecology, with the Horta do Chef urban farming project, which encourages urban farmers to sell a portion of the food they grow to restaurants in the city.

“I want the lessons of Curitiba to reach Brazil and Brazilians. It is through cities that the world will change, and this is the lesson of the World Smart City Award,” celebrated Mayor Rafael Greca (PSD).
